TICKET ALERT: Sawgrass Nature Center’s Annual Benefit Returns Nov. 13

Sawgrass Nature Center’s Annual Benefit Returns Nov. 13

2018 Sawgrass Nature Center Gala.

By: Sharon Aron Baron

When Coral Springs residents encounter a wounded or motherless animal environment, their first thought is to call the Sawgrass Nature Center & Wildlife Hospital.

Since the pandemic began in March 2020,  SNC has been busy working its way through it while providing environmental education, volunteer opportunities, and rehabilitation services to over 1,200 native Florida animals — free of charge.

When they are ready, these animals are released back into their natural habitats.

Started in 1995, SNC founder Joan Kohl realized that in western Broward County, where she lived, many caring individuals could not drive the long distances to the few facilities available to save a wild native animal. She then approached the City of Coral Springs to partner and created a wildlife hospital and environmental learning center located in the city.  The city donated the use of five acres at the Sportsplex Park, which has been open to the public since 2006.

Last year was their largest intake of animals in its 26-year history. This was in addition to working under stringent COVID restrictions, safety protocols, and a reduction in much-needed revenue-generating events such as their 2020 benefit gala.
